Financial support

Tuition Fee Loan

During the first four years of the course, students who have not already studied at degree level may receive a Tuition Fee Loan from Student Finance England. If you are from England or Wales, from your fifth year you’ll receive additional funding from the NHS.

If you’re from WalesNorthern Ireland, Scotland, Guernsey, Jersey or Isle of Man you’ll need to apply to your own funding body for your student finance, and their arrangements may differ.

The Tuition Fee Loan is paid directly to the University on your behalf. It covers the cost of your tuition fees in full. You start paying this back after you have left university, and are earning over £25,000.

NHS funding

If you are from England or Wales, from the fifth year of your course you will be eligible for NHS funding providing you were living in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man for at least 3 years before the start of your course. NHS funding does not have to be repaid. 

Please see the NHS Student Bursaries and Student Finance - NHS bursaries website for further information.

Maintenance Loan (UK students only)

The Maintenance Loan covers, or helps towards, your living costs. The amount you receive will depend on your residual household income. Like the Tuition Fee Loan, you will start paying this back after you have left university and are earning over £25,000. 

Student Finance England have a calculator to help you determine how much Maintenance Loan you are eligible to receive.
